Humble Beginnings:

 Manifesting an Inward Journey

I started out this journey into the world of chalk painting during a period where I was pondering my life, my goals,  my desires, and also deciding where I wanted to invest my time.  Selfishly the answer became "ME."  I wanted to invest some time in me.   

This reflective process was happening in my life, but also began to happen with furniture as I searched for pieces, imagined what they were, where they might need a few repairs,  and what they might become.  

This creative process really grabbed my attention, and I fell in love with the entire process of finding treasures from days gone by, creating new and beautiful pieces, that inspired others to fall in love with them again with new life and purpose, and new homes to settle into.  

Eco-conscious nature of repurposing furniture

Paint, colour, texture, shape, form , all come in to play in this wonderful undertaking of recreating and repurposing furniture and restyling your home and life to suit your needs and tastes.  Sometimes you pick colours to match your space, sometimes the piece tells you what it might become.  Repainted in high quality, delicious matte finished paint with ultra low or  zero VOC's.  I believe in using products that are safe for you, your families, and the environment.  Repurposing furniture keeps it out of landfills and extends the life of beautiful wooden creations.

Every piece of furniture I have encountered comes with a story.   Some of the stories are not shared beyond bumps and dings, sometimes signs are there of a lack of care or abuse, or signs of normal everyday wear and tear.  But often when I encounter people selling their furniture,  they LOVE to share stories of where their piece of furniture came from - some from foreign lands, or who it used to belong to, or an event or visit to some place where they purchased it originally.  Often furniture reminds people of loved ones that have past away, or having inherited a piece that was in a childhood home. 


Like furniture, every person I encounter has a story.  Some are hesitant to share it with others, but more often than not, people are quick to open up and share pieces of their lives, their stories, their history, and their hopes and dreams with others.   I find that in the "busy ness" of our lives we often forget to take time to listen to others...sometimes in families, they have heard the same stories over and over again, and it is when those bits of peoples lives are shared with someone new, that the stories fall on kinder,  and more attentive listening ears.
